kosher salt
2 tsp light brown sugar, packed
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Vegetable oil (for brushing)

Salad Ingredients
1 cup finely chopped red onion
3 tbsp sherry vinegar, divided
2 lbs cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup chopped celery hearts (inner stalks and leaves from 1 bunch)
1/2 cup chopped brined green olives plus 2 tbsp olive brine
2 tbsp prepared horseradish
1 tbsp Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Steak Directions
Place steaks on a large rimmed baking sheet, season with salt.  Mix sugar and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl; rub all over steaks.  Cover and refrigerate 1-3 hours.

Let steaks stand at room temperature for 1 hour.  Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to high.  Brush grates with oil. Grill to desired doneness, about 5-7 minutes per side for medium-rare.  Let rest for 10 minutes.

Salad Directions
Mix onion and 1 tablespoon vinegar in a large bowl.  Let macerate 10 minutes, tossing often.  Add tomatoes, celery, and olives.

Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, olive brine, horseradish, and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl.  Slowly whisk in oil.  Add to bowl with tomato mixture; toss to coat.  Season with salt and pepper.
